Vogue Australia Entertaining & Travel – my inspiration!

Now, I am not a hoarder by any stretch, but I was just working on a party for a client and found myself leafing through Vogue Australia (the best!) Entertaining‘s – wait for it – February 1998 issue!  Most large newsstands with international issues in large cities carry this most amazing of the glossies.  The food, the photography, the interiors – gosh, I’ve let my secret out.  And because Oz is the opposite of America in weather – they are now approaching Spring – I get a sneak peek of trending before the seasons!


Anyway, I found the most amazing recipe for end of summer here in the States that I wanted to share with our readers.  It’s a Portuguese dish called acorda – a cold bread and vegetable soup (rather like the Tuscan Panzanella) with lobster.   I am thinking of serving it as the first course at a June wedding I’m doing on a farm!

Here’s a link to a good recipe – you can add all sorts of shellfish, like a cioppino, or stick to just lobster.  And yes, a lovely Vinho Verde is just the ticket!  I would totally be an etiquette “don’t” and take a white linen napkin, tuck it into my shirt and get down!

As a mom, lifestyle expert, surfer and event planner, I love to discover the next uber-cool thing! Whether it's a shoe, a wine, a food, a photographer, a designer, a blog, a flower or a travel spot, you can find me trolling for it! I also like to blog about the kids and how running a household like this keeps me grounded. I love all things beautiful, but mostly Mr. F4 and the little ones, Ava and Leo. Things I love: sparkly anything, homecooked meals, snowy white sheets, holidays, photography, monograms, antique silver, reading everything I can get my hands on, Pilates, learning anything new, antiquing, gardening, collecting cookbooks and shoes, mixing slouchy sofas w/ sleek chairs, collecting china, the beach, Ruzzetti & Gow seashells, seersucker, Sharpies, Chanel lipgloss, counting my blessings. Drop me an email or a comment and I look forward to meeting you!
